I have completed my Master's in Germany. I have got an offer from a company, which I should accept within 5 days. There is positive feedback from another company, but no offer has been made yet and it is unlikely that one will be made within 5 days time.
The contract I have now says that there will be a probation period of 6 months and if I decide to quit in the first month of joining, the notice period is only 2 weeks.
I would like to sign the contract and accept the offer. However, is there a possibility to quit without having personally gone to the office on the first working day? The contract does not explicity state what happens if I am a no-show.
More importantly, does this 2 week notice period commence from the date of entry or from the date of signing the contract?
Just further information, the starting date mentioned in the received contract is two months from the date of signing the contract.
If it matters, the job applicant is a non-EU citizen.
